Fashion Museum Bath


disabled access

The Fashion Museum Bath holds a world-class collection of contemporary and historic dress.
The Museum of Costume was opened in the Assembly Rooms on 23 May 1963. It was founded by Doris Langley Moore, a designer, collector, writer and scholar, who gave her famous private collection of costume to the city of Bath.
The Museum of Costume changed its name to the Fashion Museum in summer 2007. It is housed in the Assembly Rooms building, which is owned by the National Trust.

Child carriers and baby changing facilities (for both men and women) are available. A lift enables wheelchairs and pushchairs to access lower levels.

Children's facilities
We have a small selection of colourful backpacks which can be loaned out to children during their visit. They contain books, puzzles and fashion related activities.There is an activities trolley for the use of children and families. This includes quizzes, word games and colouring sheets.

Pushchairs and prams are permitted in the Fashion Museum. However, you may find it easier to use one of our courtesy child carriers for babies and toddlers as there are stairs down to the museum galleries.
